Reviews for Shredded Beef au Jus
"Delicious and easy."
"Very good... I eliminated the salts and used garlic power and onion powder instead. I also added some sliced onions half way thru the cooking time."
"Made this for dinner the other night, love the taste and it was so easy! Did add a sliced onion to it."
"When I first started cooking I thought "oh no, it's so watery, doesn't look good". A few hours later the house was filled with an amazing aroma and the shredded meat was soooo good! I love how this takes literally 5 minutes to make and is absolutely delicious!"
"I made Chicago-Style Beef Sandwiches last weekend and then this one to compare the two. The flavors were very similar but this one took less prep time. I will use both recipes but this one is definitely better if you're in a hurry because the meat does not get browned first and no veggies to chop. Very tasty!"
"I came across this recipe out of a need to not have to buy a packet of seasoning knowing it must not be to complicated to make my own "french dip" sandwiches. I am pleased with the flavor of this and will definately call it my new standard. I also added sliced onions and used garlic powder and a little salt since i was out of garlic salt. Thanks for publishing this one!!"
"i liked the flavoring in this dish, plus the ease of making. used sandwich rolls instead to make nice french dips."
"It wasn't good or bad. I have better recipes for similar dish."
"Just need to cook long enough to shred. Very good flavor."
"Maybe I should go "punch" the butcher . . . .I followed the directions, cooked it in the slow cooker but no way could I shred it with two forks. Flavor is good, I sliced it so not a total loss, just a disappointment in not having it shredded."
"We made this & loved it & left overs were very good too. We will definitely serve this to guest's."
"My family just love this. Nice change from sloppy joes to shredded beef......hmmmm////!"
"Would cut the salt mostly and then add some beef broth instead of water, it is delish!!!! Jan"
"Not one of the better slow cooker recipes I've tried. After reading the reviews, I deleted the salts altogether, and used a whole clove of garlic. I also replaced the water and beef bouillon granules with beef broth. Maybe that's what I did wrong -- the dish was very bland. Both DH and I were disappointed."
"This was a great easy recipe that my family loved, especially the au Jus! I will definitely make again and again."
"Suggestion for those of you that said it is too salty; use garlic power instead of garlic salt. I always substitute garlic or onion power when it calls for garlic or onion salt, it works great and cuts back on the sodium."
"I added 1 tablespoon dried minced onion and changed the salt to 1-1/2 teaspoons and replaced the garlic salt with 1 teaspoon granulated garlic. Awesome taste."
"Made this for the hunting party this weekend. Usually they will eat anything. No one liked this."
"A little saltly like the other recipes said, but definitely worth making. Picky husband also Loved it"
"My two boys, 7 and 3, loved this. My 3-year-old even dipped his sandwich in the au jus! I think it would also be good with some onions or some such veggies in it."
"i made this again this time i added green pepper and a onion very good my family loved it!!!"
"cut back on the salt, very good"
"My whole family enjoyed this. However, I deleted the rosemary since we don't like it and I also cut down on the garlic salt and seasoned due to other reviewers saying it was too salty. It turned out just right for us."
"very good will make again, i used french bread and added mozzarella cheese,"
"Nice change from typical BBQ recipes. It was very salty so I will adjust that next time."
"It was easy to prepare and delicious."
"I have made this several times only I used a deer roast and you can not tell it is not a beef roast. Delicious. Also used a pork roast and it turned out excellent too."
"We made this for the first time a few weeks ago and just bought the ingredients for another round. It is melt-in-your-mouth good! I substituted 2 cups low-sodium beef broth for the beef granules and water."
"Wow! This was soooo delicious!"
"Love this! Easy and delicious. My whole family loved it:)"
"I tried this recipe for the first time about 4 months ago and have made it bi-weekly ever since. My entire family loves it. The meat is, as everyone else stated, incredibly tender and the au jus is great. I didn't have rosemary on hand the first time I made it and we loved it so much that I'm actually afraid to try it with the rosemary. I'll have to be adventurous one of these times and give it a try."
"Love this slow cooker meal. Very moist, tender and full of flavor!"
"The is a great slow cooker meal! The beef turned out tender and very flavorful. This is one I will be making again."
